Amboseli National Park at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, 5895m Kilimanjaro, is one of the most popular of Kenya's national parks. The snowcapped peak of Mt Kilimanjaro rising above a saucer of clouds dominates every aspect of Amboseli. The park covers 392 square kilometers and supports a wide range of mammals (over 50 species) and birds (over 400 species). Elephants roam the parks in herds of hundred or more and nowhere else can these largest land mammals be seen in larger numbers.
This is also the home of the Maasai people - tall, proud nomads whose legendary prowess in battle and single-handed acts has spread across the globe. They live harmoniously with the wildlife. The park is composed of a seasonal lake, swamps and springs fed by underground rivers from Kilimanjaro's melting snow. The snows of the Kilimanjaro white and crystalline, form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most spectacular displays of wildlife - over thousands of elephants, leopard, giraffe, cheetah, buffalo and host of plains' game.
